Assessment

The Hudson School District uses a variety of assessment tools to measure students’ understanding of content. The results are used to help tailor instruction in the classroom.

In daily instruction, formative assessments are used throughout a unit of study as a ‘check for understanding’ and help teachers and students identify areas that need additional reinforcement. 

Summative assessments are at the end of a unit of study and help a student demonstrate their full understanding. 

School-wide assessments allow us to monitor student learning throughout the year and give us the ability to make necessary adjustments to improve instruction and meet each student’s unique needs.  

The following are some of the assessments used in the Hudson School District:

  • i-Ready
  • NH Statewide Assessment System - statewide tests for English language arts and mathematics in grades 3-8 and science in grades 5, 8, and 11
  • The SAT | College Board - the SAT is administered to all New Hampshire students in grade 11
  • ACCESS - a comprehensive test for English language learners
  • Teacher created assessments
